In recent weeks, speculations have been swirling around all media outlets concerning presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health. Every conspiracy theorist with access to the Internet has been trying figure out what kind of condition Clinton might have. Some believe that the Democratic Party is actively withholding information on Clinton’s health from the American public.
Many people in the mainstream media have now had to address the former Secretary of State’s health, and some have added their support for releasing Hillary Clinton’s most recent medical records. On a recent episode of Sean Hannity’s radio show, both he and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich devoted a whole segment to analyzing Clinton’s recent coughing fit at a Cleveland Labor Day rally. This coughing video has been seen over 300,000 times on YouTube. After she has coughed for a bit, Hilary Clinton says that every time she thinks of a Trump presidency she gets allergic.
Hannity played a bunch of clips of Clinton’s coughing attacks, and Newt Gingrich said that her fits were both “deeper” and “longer” in recent days. Hannity said that this most recent bout of coughing lasted exactly four minutes and 20 seconds. Both Gingrich and Hannity agreed that the public should have access to her medical records.
Interestingly, in the middle of this discussion, Newt Gingrich had a coughing fit of his own. Hannity joked by saying that Gingrich was beginning to “sound like Hillary,” to which Gingrich simply replied that he is still in far better shape than Hillary Clinton. Gingrich said that his throat gets dry from flying around the nation so often. Curiously, neither Hannity nor Gingrich admitted that Clinton also travels around the world on a very regular basis.
Some Democrats believe this little incident on Hannity’s show serves as a moment of instant karma. Many on the left believe that Clinton’s health is not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be.
The real beginning of this explosion in Internet content dedicated to Clinton’s health is hard to pinpoint. Some people believe reporting from the conservative Breitbart News Network, InfoWars, and videos by Paul Joseph Watson sparked the speculations on Hilary Clinton’s health. Now there are thousands of videos produced every day on sites like YouTube concerning this issue.
